Hello,

The rules say explicitly that after you get the bonus associated with a 5 power action, you keep the token in front of you.

However, I can't seem to find anything that uses this token, so why am I keeping it as opposed to just returning it to the box?

Whenever I've run into questions like this in the past, it usually means that I am missing something from the rules, so what is it this time?

Iavor

I believe that one of the goals is to collect 5, other than that no reason to do so.

There is a bonus card that you score for having a mix of 5 tokens/foreign agents.

Yes. If that particular goal is not in the game, then there is no reason to keep them around.

At the end of the game, the player with the most 5 power tokens is awarded the 'Most powerful player' award and has to show his might by bending a 50mm thick, 1 metre long steel tube at least 90 degrees.

I must be getting old. I can remember a time when the classic "test of strength" was one's ability to tear a phone book in half. But lately, whenever I offer that challenge to anyone younger than me (a fast-growing group), I get a blank look as they ask "what the hell is a phone book?"

I just tell them it's an app they have GOT to get and walk off while they furiously start stabbing buttons on their phone...
